An oasis for weary workers, stressed desk jockeys, fatigued caregivers, strung-out digital addicts, busy moms & dads, or anyone who drives the beltway.
Could you do with a big dollop of peace in the middle of your week?
We live in a vibrant, busy, urban setting where overachievement is the status quo, desk jockey jobs tether us to glowing screens from dawn to dusk, commuting is a white-knuckle affair, and frenzy-fueled exhaustion and burnout is too common. We are barraged by messages, both subliminal and explicit, that this is the price we pay for the privilege of being a grownup.
Have you bought the story that expecting anything different is out of reach? It's understandable: it's reinforced every time we see another weary face on the metro, turn on the news, hear the shrill horns of impatient drivers, and listen to the discouraged tales of others' exhaustion and burnout.
Living by the hormones of stress is unsatisfying at best and unhealthy at worst. Pausing now and again get reacquainted with the grace tucked inside the present moment is not only intelligent, it's do-able.
Consider dedicating one hour a week to counterposing the rat race for six weeks at Sun & Moon Yoga Studio in Arlington. Zero experience with any of the modalities we'll explore each week is required — come as you are.
